Top 10 Reasons to Hire a Professional for Gutter Cleaning – Westboro MA

Gutter Cleaning Westboro MA

Gutter cleaning isn’t the most glamorous job that there is. I’ve put together a list of 10 reasons to hire a professional this Autumn instead of trying to do it yourself.

1.) You have much better things to do with your time. Who really WANTS to hang off of the edge of your roof on your day off.
2.) You don’t have to risk the dangers of climbing a ladder. Stay safe. Keep your feet on the ground.
3.) Hornets. You would be surprised how much hornets love to make their nests up there. You might also be surprised at how many times I’ve got stung after popping my head over the top of the gutter only to find that its full of hornets.
4.) Bats. I know you don’t like them, and I’m not a fan either. Bats like to sleep in between the fascia and the siding, as well as other nooks and crannys that they can crawl behind. I’ll tell you it’s always a surprise to see one of them come flying out at you!
5.) Birds. Not quite as scary as bats and hornets but they aren’t always too welcoming when you are trying to clean their nest out of the gutters. It’s kind of difficult to focus on safety when you are trying to swat at a bird that is swooping at your head.
6.) Allergies. Gutters collect leaves, pollen, algae and mold. Once the leaves get stuck up there and start to trap water, they decompose and start to grow mold and fungus.
7.) Electricity. Very often the electric service joins to your house from the telephone very close to the gutters making them difficult to avoid while reaching near to clean. On top of that most ladders are aluminum as well as some gutter cleaning tools. Metal objects, your body and electricity aren’t things that should be mixed. Combining all three while on top of a ladder is a deadly mistake.
8.) Gutter cleaning is a dirty job. Decomposing leaves, pine cones, mud, bird droppings, dead animals, etc…
9.) Insurance. I’m insured. That means that if somehow anyone were to get hurt or your property was damaged, we are covered. Is your gutter cleaning professional insured? Are you?
10.) We do this for a living. We don’t just clean your gutters. We look for potential problems and often times repair them at no additional cost. We spot loose gutter hangers, leaking seams, loose downspouts, improperly pitched gutters, etc…

Wagner Window Service


  • 5 star review  I would highly recommend Tim Wagner and Wagner Window Service. Not only was the quality of the workmanship superb but they also went above and beyond to exceed my expectations. The process of scheduling was very convenient. They arrived on time and were courteous and professional. I had my windows and gutters cleaned and they also pressure washed my vinyl siding. The price was reasonable and everything came out beautiful! My gutters hadn't been cleaned in years so I know they were a challenge. But Tim took extra time to make sure they were perfect. I live on a busy road so the windows and siding were really dingy. When they finished cleaning, my windows were glowing and the siding was back to it's original light color. If you need pressure washing, window cleaning or gutter cleaning, look no further than Wagner Window Service.
